The people in the SUVs
Don’t care about ecology
As long as they can compete
With the folks across the street.
They vote against their interest
On things that might just suit them best.
Like better mileage in their car
But the vote will never get that far.
Women vote for ugly laws
Thinking it’s a righteous cause
To let some rich man decide for her
When pregnancy will occur.
And when she can or can’t conceive.
It’s quite impossible to believe
That she would vote for such a creep.
It’s a wonder any of them can sleep.
And why would any black person be
A Republican that hates equality?
And any person who works at a job
Republicans think of you as a slob.
They only care about campaign funds.
They think of the poor as thieves and bums.
They distract you from the things you could
Mend to make this country good.
If nobody is gay, and that isn’t a possibility,
That won’t fix our income inequality.
If every citizen is carrying around a gun
Do you think football games will be fun?
And if sports stadiums are so important,
Why are our cities a disappointment?
With people who can’t get decent work
While others elect rapacious jerks?
We send money overseas to feed the poor
While our starving and unhoused are ignored
And treated as if they are criminals
And the only time the cops are visible
Is if black people begin to act like white
And commit crimes like walking at night.
We need to fix things right here at home.
There is no need for us to roam.
